The word “supercar” gets thrown around so much these days, it can be hard to discern what actually qualifies anymore. But when you see and learn about these cars, it is almost immediately apparent that they would appeal to just about anyone with a pulse. We’ve picked out some of our favorites, which are about to come up for sale at auction.

For a limited time, you can peek at the 9 cars below in the Gooding & Company catalogue before they go on sale at their Amelia Island Auctions from February 29th to March 1st. You can register to bid on them here if we’ve already hooked you.

2014 McLaren P1(Estimate: $1,800,000 – $2,200,000)

We’re starting off strong with the most-discussed make of our generation: McLaren. The McLaren P1 is the pinnacle of cutting edge technology and engineering. The P1 was developed as the successor to the legendary F1 model of the previous generation. A total of 375 P1s were built, all with groundbreaking hybrid technology– the P1 uses the electric motor for torque-fill to eliminate tiny inefficiencies in the gas engine’s performance. This results in phenomenal levels of power from the 3,799 CC DOHC Twin-Turbo V-8 engine. It is very rare to find this car in McLaren Orange, and perhaps more rare to find one with fewer than 3,000 miles from new, like this one.

2012 Lexus LFA(Estimate: $800,000 – $900,000)

Lexus has a reputation for state-of-the-art innovation and pioneering prowess, no doubt about it. The Japanese company has got cutting edge technology on lock! The Lexus LFA was the product of nearly a decade of engineering, which coincided with Toyota’s return to Formula 1 in the early 2000s. Just 500 examples were constructed from 2010 to 2012, with only 181 built for the US market. Of these, no. 54 stands out as one of only 10 examples that were finished in Metallic Silver. Through individually tailored bespoke appointments, this LFA features red leather upholstery with black accents, stitching, and Alcantara headliner, beautifully set off by carbon fiber and black-anodized magnesium trim. The LFA is propelled by a naturally aspirated, front-mounted 4.8-liter V-10, developing 533 bhp at 8,700 rpm and 354 lbs./ft. of torque at 6,800 rpm. The high revving engine has more in common with Toyota’s 3.0-liter V-10 Formula 1 engine than it does with any other Lexus. It’s in pristine original condition, with very few miles at the time of cataloguing, ushering in a generation of Japanese modern collectibles.

2019 Porsche 991 GT2 RS Clubsport(Estimate: $550,000 – $650,000, Without Reserve)

Now we wouldn’t get very far in the hypercar conversation without bringing up this 991 Series Porsche. It has the same 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-six engine as the standard GT2 RS, but is optimized with a new intercooler with a redesigned supply and return air feed, as well as  a water-spray system to cool incoming air and decrease intake temperatures. Finished in Pure White without a livery, this model is in unused condition, with only delivery miles on it. It’s a track day weapon, and an exceptional one, at that.

2019 Porsche 991 GT3 Cup(Estimate: $250,000 – $350,000, Without Reserve)

This is kind of a fact unknown to non-Porsche fanatics, but since 1986, Porsche has hosted a Cup racing series for its 911 model, which included 911 chassis such as 964, 993 and 997. The GT3 Cup racer here was based on the production 991 GT3 in 2013, with updates to the 4.0-liter flat-six engine to make it more durable. Power was transmitted to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential manual gearbox operated via paddle shifters. It is also made of aluminum steel, making it more aerodynamic and rigid than before. Delivered new in 2020, this car has never been campaigned or tracked. Essentially, it’s waiting for a good time.
